Jim/Kimo & other Eudora-users,

I get really frustrated when I e-mail someone and find that the e-mail
I sent them wrapped excessively. What I mean is that when every other
line is a word or two wrapped, the message looks like crap. Part of the
problem is that the display I am using is 1280x1024 and Eudora allows
119 characters on a line before it wraps. The wrap setting within
Eudora 3.0 controls what is displayed, not what is sent. I dug into the
problem and found the following fix:

        Exit Eudora and close

        Edit Eudora.ini with Notepad
                Add the following to [settings]:

        Save Eudora.ini and exit

Enter Eudora and send yourself a test message. The message will now
wrap properly.
